I wonder if that explains some of the technical glitches I've seen lately, with the video 
suddenly freezing or jumping, audio dropouts, etc.  And tonight, while watching "Commander 
in Chief," the music sounded as though it was being played on a warped phonograph record.  
I used to note the same problem on WPTR when I could listen to it on AM.  I'm sure a hard 
drive can operate without these problems, since I've never heard them on WJIB.
